The only way to close the achievement gap for all students is to drive change at all schools. No exceptions. But change is such a huge idea - where do you start? In this Education on Air talk, Michael Fullan tackles three critical imperatives: create great leaders, stop boring students, and drive change from the middle out rather than the top down. Backed by data and filled with stories of people just like you who have made change happen, Michael discusses solutions you can put to work immediately.
Michael Fullan, OC, is the former Dean of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto. Recognized as a worldwide authority on educational reform, Michael advises policymakers and leaders around the world. His books include "Leading in a Culture of Change," "Six Secrets of Change" and "Big City School Reform."
